for reform. 11:00 a.m., obama held a lengthy strategy session with the congressional black hispanic caucus. across town at 3:00 p.m., all 234 house republicans were scheduled to meet in a veritable immigration therapy session. but if you think it all points towards some hope for progress on the issue, you probably didn't see the headline on politico today. immigration reform heads for slow death. what's going on, you ask? republicans walked away from their 2012 debacle hellbent on fixing their problems with hispanics and now hellbent on making them worse. republicans on capitol hill predict comprehensive immigration reform will die a slow months' long death in the house. let's get right to it. joining us msnbc contributor steve schmitt and jim vandehei. isn't the rub of this the fact that we have hyper partisanship and so few republicans in the house are representing hispanics in their districts, consequently no accountability when they go home? >> that's a huge part of. this house republican conference is very conservative, they come from mostly rural districts, they have mostly white con

. kristen welker is at the white house this morning with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. president obama will continue to monitor the snowden situation this morning. he spoke by phone friday night with russian president vladimir putin about snowden. white house officials said both leaders noted the importance of the relationship between united states and russia, still it is a tense time. american fugitive edward snowden hiked out of a mass cow airport for another day, the move straining relations between the united states and russia which is already fraught with tensions dating back to the cold war. >> snowden has fallen into the midst of a relationship that has been trying to get itself onto another footing again. this couldn't really have happened at a worse moment. >> reporter: this after snowden, the man behind the nsa security leak surfaced on friday for the first time in three weeks from the airport, heard here defending his actions after meeting with human rights groups. >> i did not seek to enrich myself. i did not seek to sell u.s. secrets. i did not part
option for snowden, that might not be the best option for u.s.-russia relations. we know president obama spoke yesterday, and the readout from the white house is pretty innocuous, but it says the two leaders recognized the bilateral relations and noticed a range of security, including the status of mr. edward snowden and the cooperation on counterterrorism in the lead-up to the olympics, which i guess is another topic they were talking about. do you believe this would have a serious impact, if he did stay in russia, on u.s.-russia relations? it's already tense, but could it get worse? >> i think it would have an impact. the problem is there are hundreds of russian defectors living in this country that the russians would like to try to bring back home. we're not giving them up and they're safe here. so the russians are saying, look, guys, this is the way the game is played. he's on our turf. we have him, you do this to us, we're going to do it to you. and the president is mad about syria, a couple other issues, and anything to poke it in his eye right now would serve the russians well. >>
house is debating a complete pullout of u.s. troops from afghanistan perhaps as soon as next year. obama administration officials tell cbs news, frustration with afghan's president karzai is contributing to the possible reversal of the plan that had been to keep a small number of american troops over there after 2014. and house speaker john boehner says he's had concerns about u.s. involvement in afghanistan for some time. however, no official decision has been made yet. >>> the countdown is on for the birth of prince william and kate's baby. okay. by some media reports, the fourth in line to the british throne is due in just four days. that would be, oh, saturday. the duchess of cambridge is in london but prince william is on duty with the royal air force about 300 miles away in wales. and he is reportedly planning to take a helicopter home just to make it to the hospital on time. first word of the baby's arrival will go to the queen. a notice will then be posted on an easel outside buckingham palace and the royals will also tweet the news on the birth. so much for-- >> a notice on an e

it is interesting. here's the irony. the republican house you know, republicans love the fact that it has been radically obstructionist. won't allow obama to do anything with his agenda. stood in the way of two-term president the way no other house in congress has ever done before. just adopting the radical rules and committed not to getting anything done. but by the way, we kind of want to get the immigration bill done and now they can't change this monster because it is not equipped to do anything to get anything passed to have serious debate, to come together to make some sort of negotiated deal. so you know, literally if you talk to -- you know, the professionals, the future -- the electoral future of the party is riding on this bill. they're leaving it with this completely purposely dysfunctional body that is now just wider not to get anything done. it would be incredibly ironic if this frankenstein they've created ends up dooming their future. >> stephanie: i saw a cartoon over the weekend. they said we built a wall to keep them out. it just says latino vote. the republican party. i thin

own signature health care law. imagine that the current occupant of the white house was not president obama but a republican, just imagine that. pretend that this republican had come to office promising an era of inclusion and accountability. but as the years wore on, he simply had grown tired of the democratic process. imagine that this president, despite securing confirmation for nearly every nominee he submitted, couldn't understand why the elected senate didn't sumly rush them all through even quicker. he couldn't understand why senators insisted on fulfilling their constitutional obligations to scrutinize each nominee. just visualize for a moment that this president decided to urge members of his party to break the rules of the senate so that he could appoint whomever he wanted regardless of checks and balances. imagine the outrage in the media, online and especially on the other side of the aisle. they'd claim the president was a dictator. they'd say he was ripping the constitution to shreds. basically everything they said for so many years about president bush. but of course pr
